Spring Weekend 2023
A weekend of talks – live at the beautiful Blackfriars Priory in Gloucester.
Professor Alice Roberts, Greg Jenner, Peter Frankopan, Tim Marshall and Kavita Puri are just some of the 20 speakers taking us on a quest into past, present and future this Spring.
A Royal Weekend: A fortnight before the Coronation we feature no less than a dozen monarchs in our three-day programme. From Alfred the Great to Elizabeth I, Tutankhamen to the Tudors and Henry VIII to Charles III, where better to explore royalty than in Gloucester where Henry III was crowned – and under the Blackfriars beams which he himself donated.
The History of Now: If you’ve been trying to make sense of where the world has reached join us to explore politics, power and space with Tim Marshall, the Cold War and its legacy in Ukraine with Martin Sixsmith and the aftermath of The Great Partition with Yasmin Khan and Kavita Puri.
